During my freshman year of high school, my circle of friends was fairly limited. I had three friends who I associated with daily, and I was perfectly content with this. In place of expanding my social standing and friend group, I spent a good number of my days walking home after school and doing nothing besides laying in my room listening to music. This might sound lonely to some, but I was happy doing it, so I felt no need to change. Music was and is one of the greatest companions I’ve had, and one of the best tools I feel people can use to connect with themselves, and even others.
